ESG Brief: Email Security Reemerges as a Top Priority

Abstract:

With continued, persistent phishing attacks affecting organizations of all sizes across all industries, a resurgence of investment in email security solutions is occurring. As organizations shift their email strategies to cloud-delivered providers, most falsely believe that these providers offer comprehensive email security controls. Traditional secure email gateways are no longer sufficient to protect organizations against modern email attack techniques. Third-party email security controls will be required to effectively secure organizations utilizing cloud-delivered email services against modern, sophisticated, email-borne attacks.

ESG Brief: Microsoft (Windows) Defender ATP—Changing the Endpoint Security Landscape?

Abstract:

There’s been a lot of speculation as to how much Windows Defender (now Microsoft Defender) will impact the endpoint security market. With the continued prevalence of Windows devices in the corporate endpoint landscape, these endpoints continue to be the most vulnerable and most often attacked. With an increasing cadre of endpoint alternatives with better perceived security available to business users, Microsoft is clearly motivated to close this gap by fortifying the security of these devices in a way that enables its continued dominance in the corporate endpoint market. With a majority of organizations now utilizing Defender in a meaningful way, Microsoft is beginning to gain a foothold as a layered security control on the endpoint, but why aren’t organizations ready to go all in with Defender? And with the recent announcements for Mac support, and Linux support on the way, can Microsoft up its game and become a significant player in endpoint security, changing the endpoint security landscape moving forward?
